Says Atticus Ross (left, with Reznor at the Academy Awards in February) of "The Social Network's" three-note theme: "It was genius, and I can say that objectively because it wasn't me who came up
with it."

Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross will return to score another David Fincher film, this time an adaptation of the best-selling novel Gone Girl.

The Nine Inch Nails frontman announced the news on his Twitter account, tweeting to his 1.65 million followers Tuesday.

The Fincher-directed Gone Girl, slated to hit theaters Oct. 3, stars Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, Tyler Perry and Neil Patrick Harris. It is based on the 2012 novel, which is told in alternating husband-and-wife perspectives, from author Gillian Flynn.

Gone Girl centers on Nick Dunne (Affleck), who is accused of murdering his wife Amy (Pike) after she disappears on their fifth anniversary.

Reznor and Ross won an Academy Award in 2011 for their haunting original score for Fincher's Oscar-nominated The Social Network. They also teamed up on The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, also directed by Fincher, which scored a Grammy nomination for best original score for visual media.

In a 2011 interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Reznor contrasted his experiences scoring Social Network and Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. “The Social Network was very much an education from start to finish,” Reznor said at the time. “[Dragon Tattoo] felt a bit more like: ‘Ah, serial killers and anal raping, I know what that sounds like. It’s not as much of a stretch …’ Let me rephrase that -- a dark tone felt more familiar.”
